Detroit Tigers pitcher Armando Galarraga is ho-hum about being on the mound for the first time with umpire Jim Joyce since their infamous moment together.
"It will be no big deal," Galarraga said Thursday.
Galarraga is the probable pitcher and Joyce is scheduled to be behind the plate Friday night when Detroit hosts Baltimore.
"Apprehensive, but also kind of excited about it," Joyce said Wednesday night in Pittsburgh.
Joyce cost Galarraga a perfect game on June 2 when he blew a call at first base, signaling Cleveland's Jason Donald safe on what should've been the game-ending out.
The veteran and respected umpire acknowledged he made the wrong call after the game and sought out Galarraga to apologize. Joyce and Galarraga hugged the next day on the field and both have been praised for how they handled an unfortunate situation.
